"You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, ‘Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.’ I’m like, “What?” She’s like, ‘There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.’ I’m like, ‘Holy s**t!’ She’s like, ‘I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.’ So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.
"We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, ‘Oh, this is….’ She’s like, ‘I know, I know.’ I said, ‘I’m gonna sign these posters.’ I was like, ‘That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.’ Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, ‘I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.’
"I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, ‘Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.’ He’s like, ‘Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.’ And I was like, ‘No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.’ And I’m like, ‘No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.’ I said, ‘What?’ He’s like, ‘You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.’
"He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels."
in honor of Mean Girls’ 10th anniversary, here’s an incredibly subtle but completely extraordinary joke that you’ve probably never noticed from the movie (I saw it at least a dozen times before it dawned on me): Regina George started a rumor that Janis Ian was a lesbian in the 8th grade, but it wasn’t out of malice… it was because Janis told her that she was Lebanese

1. I am so thrilled to have been named to the 2014 TIME 100. Shai’s essay is so kind and generous. That sentence about planets and moons is a lovely goal for us all to reach toward. Now, that said, I’m no prophet. I’m a guy who not too long ago tried to wax his chin.
2. Do I really look like that illustration?
Hey friends! If you’ve been following me since February I am very sorry to annoy you with yet another post about my ex boyfriend Steve, shavingryansprivates, regarding his awful behavior towards others.
A few months ago I spoke openly about how he sexually assaulted me while we were together sometime in December or January. After publicly speaking about his mistreatment towards me, 3 girls messaged me sharing their experiences with him. Amid exposing male bloggers for their predatory behavior recently, 4 more have come forward to tell me about their experiences with him.
So I’m compiling this post so his other victims can share their stories and have their voices heard. Just so everyone knows, it’s a very long post.
Warning: there are mentions of #sexual assault, #emotional abuse, and #predatory behavior so please exercise caution if you continue to read.
